I'm suddenly curious what the attraction properties of ferromagnetic materials (iron, etc.) in their liquid and gas states. Like, if you have two streams of molten iron flowing down a slight incline, will they flow towards each other? And does iron gas clump together? And then repel other parts of the gas?
Is my journal read by any chem and/or physics geeks that can answer this?

Some people count sleep to fall asleep. Last night while lying in bed, I determined that there is one U.S. state whose name is monosylabic, six that are bisylabic, and 25 that are trisylabic. It's evidence of some cognitive theory that I can list all the states in north-south or east-west rows with ease, but I must traverse that mental representation to get a syllable-ordered list. Even more interesting, I can construct part, but not all, of an alphabetic list without thinking about geographic location, but will undoubtedly miss at least five states that way.
